Kenya: Wajir Receives Firm's Projects

THE Safaricom Foundation has handed over development projects it has helped implement in four schools in Wajir to the county government.

The projects include classrooms and latrines at Fullo Primary School; a computer lab at Biyamathow Secondary School; a physiotherapy hall at Wajir Integrated Primary School; and classrooms and an administration block at Dashek Primary School.

Speaking during the handover on Saturday, Safaricom Foundation trustee Tony Kisaka said the move is in line with the organisation's endeavour to make a significant impact in communities across the country.

He said supporting the education sector is a priority for the foundation. "We recognise that education is the greatest change agent and without it no economy can prosper. We want to provide opportunities for all children to thrive."
